Angela Palmer is the founder of Angela Monica, a blog that encourages mothers to explore their creativity, find their identity outside of being a mom, and live their best life. She also happens to be my mom! In this episode of the Creativity & Heart podcast, we’re sitting down to chat about creativity, and how she juggled being a mom, working a full time job, and running a creative business.
Tune in to hear what my mom has to say about juggling motherhood and business, going outside of your comfort zone to explore new creative outlets, and a life lesson learned in 2020.
I hope you enjoy this interview! Mom brings so much joy and wisdom to the podcast. She might even make you laugh!
“I’m not going to sugar coat it… it’s not easy. When you have children, your time is divided. And of course your first priority is to your children. But, what I’ve found is that you have to be willing to sacrifice.” – Angela Palmer
I have 2 siblings, and we’re all adults now, so my mom knows a little something about being a mom, working outside the home, and running a business on the side!
As a creative, you exercise your creative skills daily. However, going outside of your “creative comfort zone” to explore new creative outlets can be so fun and help you strengthen your “creative muscles.”
For more on finding creative inspiration and exploring creative outlets, see episode 13 of the Creativity and Heart podcast. Exploring different creative hobbies can expand our creativity when we come back to what we do for a living.
